African American Poetry (1870-1928): A Digital Anthology

William Stanley Braithwaite, "June" (1901)

Again when nature glows
   With a sweet smile of tender rirent bloom;
And when the fragrant rose
   Makes ordorous the air with its perfume;

The happy June descends
   Amid us, with her softly warbling birds,
Whose winging concert blends
   Euphonious, sounds too full and sweet for words.
